The Party

So here's what happened to our party... Since my bestfriend of 22 years is finally getting married, I want to give her a different shower party... Many of her friends had given her the usual "all-girl bridal showers", but I want mine to be different... All I wanted was to welcome Pinky and Cocoy to their new lives together as a couple... So together with our married friends, couples, partners, we all planned on giving them a "welcome party"...

Our theme was Arabian Nights, Midnight At The Oasis... I volunteered on doing all the arrangements, the invitations, the menu, the prizes for the games, and the couple's costumes... The couple didn't have any idea on what was going to happen... I just told them to be at my place 7pm, 6th of August....

I cleared some of my stuff in the house and prepared a long table with Tiffany chairs... Made a colorful table cloth and bought fresh flowers at Dangwa, arranged them at the center... Bought Arabic Dance Music at M1, and played it all day, setting my mood to be a good host and a good belly dancer as well!! Ha!!! Dream on!!!!


Here we are... PG, Lawrence of Arabia, MS, the ex-belly dancing instructor, PJ, the ex-militant, Moi, the trying hard belly dancing student, and Pao, the Aladdin who looked more like the blue genie...



The Menu, written in Arabic Letters, whatever they are called, and translated in English... I researched them up in the internet... For Cocktails, we had Lychee Martini, Four Seasons, and Red Wine. For appetizers, we had Somosas and Chicken Curry Sandwiches. For Dinner, Chicken and Beef Curry, Spicy Curried Prawns, Chicken Kebabs, and Grilled Corn Kebabs. For dessert, we had Caramelized Banana with Vanilla Ice Cream and Sliced Almonds.


Of course, we never ran out of San Mig Light and Coffee...MG as Aladdin, Aih as Jasmine, TRV, as an Arab wearing his baby's diaper (unused), MichC, VF, BBF, PJ, Moi, Pao, MS, and PG...

The Prizes...
All of us...


And Finally, the Celebrants...



That's it for now.... I'll be posting some more pix on the nasty games tomorrow... Got to get some sleep now, terrible colds...
